fundamental disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama. and that is that we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy. we're gog to focus on the middle class, because it's when the middle class is growing, the economy grows, and everybody does well. not just focus on the wealthy and corporate america. >> moderator: thank you, senator. governor palin? palin: thank you, gwen, and i thank the commission also. i appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with americans. you know, i think a good barometer here as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in america's economy is go to a kids' soccer game on saturday and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, how are you feeling about the economy. and i'll betcha you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. did we just take a major hit with those investments? fear about how are we going to afford to send our kids to college, a fear as small busine

obama and today you say democrats are likely to keep the senate. if governor romney, it's a very narrow path when you look state-by-state. if governor romney wins the presidency that will mean there is a wave behind him, that there is some lift to him and that will bring in a couple of the senate candidates enough to put them over. >> chris? >> well just so you understand charlie cook has forgot more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible and one of the reasons people beforehand, a year ago, six months ago thought that the republicans weren't so sure as he pointed out 2006 was the way the election and democrats won in a lot of places like montana that you would expect them to win so as they went in and correct me if i'm wrong, visit democrats were defending 23 seats in the republicans only 10. just by the nature of the mathematics it seems likely the republicans would pick up seats in the democrats would look 23-10 but right now the conventional wisdom in the charlie cook wisdom is probably less than 50/50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talking about the

senator obama without precondition wants to sit down and negotiate without preconditions that is what he stated again, a matter of record. i want to make sure that iranians put enough pressure by joining with our allies imposing significant tough sanctions to modify their behavior and i think we can do that. i think joining with our allies and friends in the league of democracies if we can effectively bridge their behavior and hopefully they would abandon the quest that they are on for nuclear weapons but at the end of the day my friend, i have to tell you again, and you know what it is like to serve and you know what it is like to sacrifice, but we can never allow the second holocaust to take place. >> we cannot allow iran to get a nuclear weapon. it would be a game changer in the region. not only would it threatened israel, our strongest ally in the region and one of our strongest allies in the world, but it would also create a possibility of nuclear weapons falling in the hands of terrorists, so it is unacceptable and i will do everything required to protect and we will never take mil

too religious to be a really sophisticated country. during his run-up to the election, then senator barack obama got more than a couple of flags waved. there was the scene of him standing in a stage of iowa, were citing him -- all but one had his hand over his heart during the national anthem. that was barack obama. he explained in independence, iowa, he said, and i quote. my attitude is that i'm less concerned about what you're wearing on your lapel than what is in your heart. well, again, try that with your wife. i love you, but i'm not buying you those big diamond earrings because i'm less concerned with what you wear on your ears and what's inside your heart. president obama was asked again about the pin in an interview in cedar rapids, iowa. he said that the truth is is that right after 9/11, i have been. shortly after 9/11, particularly as we are talking about the iraq war, that became a substitute for true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security. those are his exact words. yes, he said that. it just kept getting worse. the p

house senate and president and barack obama's first term. that's because it would require them to report to the government the women they have on their payroll, the men have on that there'll come how much they pay both groups. and that's an attempt of a government should try to equalize pay between groups of women and groups of men. rather than as the law holds right now, men and women in comparable jobs in the same job. so what they're trying to do is have equal pay for equal work, not equal pay for equal work, which is two very different things. there's no reason why groups of women and groups of men in the same firm should be paid the same if they have radically different jobs. look at exxon, for example, that is a group of men and oil drilling activities. it's a dirty dangerous job. you could not get me to do. you have to pay people a lot to risked their lives doing that kind of work. exxon has a group of women in communications, assistant jobs, publications. there's no reason these two groups should be necessarily paid the same. but the paycheck benefit would be moving toward

senate republican party, has told us repeatedly that his primary priority is defeating barack obama in 2012, and it is readily understandable why he does not wish to emulate senator kennedy and, thus, enable obama's re-election. indeed, one could also say that newt gingrich made a mighty contribution to reelecting bill clinton in 1996 by giving him a welfare bill that, perhaps, he was surprised to discover that clinton would sign. now, it may be that the weakness of senator dole's candidacy would have doomed him regardless, but certainly in many ways the election was over. the evening that kennedy embraced so-called welfare reform, um, and the republican legislation that gingrich passed. what we learn in american politics is that americans irrationally fixate on the president and blame or praise the president for whatever happens. congress gets very little credit, or should i say more to the point, the presidential candidate of a opposition congress that works well with a president gets very little credit for their good sportsmanship. what they do is to reelect the incumbent president.
